and there are good ones and bad ones on boeing sides and so what we need to do is drop the label of republican and democrat. do what's best for the country because we were sent there to represent the people and not represent the party and so often we draw the line between republican and democrat and say hey, look, weir not going to work with you because you're a republican, or because you're a democrat. we didn't do hardly anything together. how are you supposed to work for someone if you haven't been able to -- >> amen. >> so why is that? >> did you make an effort to find democrats to take to the starbucks. >> absolutely. i walked up to everybody i could and even though there were not assigned busses where there would be a republican bus and a democrat bus and they weren't a signed busses, but if you didn't do anything together, people have a tendency to sit with each other. >> the republican bus is on the right side and on the democrat bus is on the left side and i thought hey, so i went on the got on the democrat bus and i sat down and had a long conversation with the other business owners

.o.d.'s negotiating position. the boeing refueling tanker, first of all, should mention we're still under a continuing resolution so that program like many other programs where funding was supposed to be ramped up it is stuck at last year's level soff it is $1 billion short. if you add sequestration on top of that and you appropriate a higher level you're still left short. s we had a contract we signed with boeing and the rate we were going to buy those tankers and now you're cutting the funding and we can't keep up our end of the contract so d.o.d. has to renegotiate with boeing. it is reported that boeing bid they bid very competitively to get that contract. do you think we're in a good position to maintain such a competitive price or is boeing going to walk out in a better position perhaps not losing money on the contract anymore. there are some areas that it is going to be bad for d.o.d. if they have to receiver -- sequester these accounts. >> so the short term is on them. probably be a severe cut back in training and that sort of thing? >> some of the options you have to look at if you have live
